About the property

Mid Century Modern Post and Beam House backs onto the open desert

This Mid Century Modern gem is located in the quiet Deep Well community. The small neighborhood is surrounded by open desert making it quiet and peaceful. The house sits back far from the road providing great views and privacy. The property backs onto the wide open desert which is the ideal place to head out on a hike.

Located within 1/2 a mile is La Casa Del Zoro Resort and Spa. It is the oldest resort and offers use of the pool, gym and amenities for a fee. The restaurant and bar are open day and night. Our neighborhood pool is seasonal and open from May through October.

The home was designed and built by architect A.H. (Hal) Martinez in 1958. It features open beam construction, walls of glass, multiple carports and great views in all directions. The interior is furnished with vintage and contemporary modern pieces. The large high definition TV offers cable and DVD movie titles. High speed wireless internet is available throughout the home. The spacious well appointed kitchen features space age Frigidaire 'Flair' oven and stove combo. In addition to the main dining room the centrally located bar offers a great alternate location for meals with fabulous mountain views to the north and south. Each bedroom has direct access to the front patio and excellent mountain views. Both bathrooms retain the original charming pink tile showers.

The large yard is loaded with mature native vegetation and includes 39 palm trees. The covered front patio runs the entire length of the house and is shaded all day from October through May. The extended portion remains in direct sun giving you the option. The covered rear patio gets direct morning sunlight. Both offer comfortable dinning and sitting areas. A gas grill and fire pit are also provided.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location, we could look across the valley at the mountains and out the back across the desert to more mountains.This home is in a quiet spot where we could look at stars, watch birds visiting, and walk out into the desert just outside the backdoor. There is lots to do in town and the surrounding area. In March, we were lucky to see a wonderful display of blooming cacti and wildflowers. The weather gave us a couple of interesting days of wind advisories, beautiful changeable light on the desert, and colourful sunsets. The house lives up to its pictures-decor is wonderful. And that stove is amazing. Rob is an accommodating host. We would highly recommend this home to anyone who likes the desert.

Serenity and beauty of the desert

  • 4 of 5

Every morning was a joy to experience when you looked outside any window to see expanses of the Anza Borrego desert! There are plenty of spaces to sit and enjoy sun or shade all around the home. The neighborhood is quiet and surroundings are so pleasant. The house is very comfortable and I loved using the Flair stove! The TV and internet were very good. The house is well maintained and nicely decorated with retro pieces. It was even better than the pictures. The owner was attentive and responsive to all our needs. We made this mid century modern house our home for a month and will be very happy to return.

Perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

PERFECT summer getaway. I’ve stayed here twice before in the winter but decided to take a summer vacation this time. I chose this home because of it's solitude on the edge of town. It's very quiet with no homes out back and rarely does a car pass by. The interior has the perfect balance of retro-cool and modern convenience, It's tastefully furnished and the beds are very comfortable. I took advantage of the neighborhood pool every day and I had it to all to myself. Looking forward to returning!!

Great Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed here twice before in the winter but decided to take a summer vacation this time. I chose this home for the view and because of its solitude on the edge of town. It’s very quiet, with no homes out back and almost no traffic passing by. The interior has the perfect balance of retro-cool and modern convenience.

It’s tastefully furnished and the beds are very comfortable. I took advantage of the neighborhood pool every day and I had it all to myself. Looking forward to returning!

Enjoyable and relaxing in comfort

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I had a most enjoyable month staying at this amazing property in Borrego Springs. We absolutely loved the vintage furniture and modern art work. We had many warm winter evenings at the fire pit enjoying the star gazing. The Bed was very comfortable and the views from very room were exceptional.

Excellent Choose 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

After a bad winter in NJ we decided to take April off and go spent a month in the Borrego Springs desert. Living thru the 50's we really enjoyed the clean Mid Century Home. Rob was very friendly and told us about the various restaurants in DOWNTOWN Borrego Springs. We tried them out and were very pleased. They even had free music. On the weekend we enjoyed a Feasible at the circle. The American Legion clubhouse is also within walking distance. The house was great and there was plenty to do including restful views allover.
